  2. aBites/person/night
  3. bProbability of daily mosquito survival
  4. cProportion of blood meals taken from humans to the total number of blood meals taken from any animal
  5. dDaily inoculations per single malaria case
  6. eEstimated P. falciparum reproduction rate: Total number of inoculations from a single malaria case (The basic reproduction rate values are derived on the assumption that a non-immune, untreated case of P. falciparum is infective to the vector for a total of 80 days)
  7. fNumber of mosquitoes positive of sporozoites per mosquito tested multiplied by 100
  8. gInfectious bites per person per year
